Fall Capsule: Part One

Fall Capsule: Part One

Today I’m talking about the power of a capsule wardrobe and how every season I try to buy only a few special pieces to round out my closet. Throughout the year I try to purchase mostly quality basics as my true wardrobe workhorses and then add in a few outstanding pieces each new season.

This F/W season I’ve identified a couple of items I’m currently lusting after…

  • A special blouse (check)

  • A pair of velvet heels

  • A faux leopard coat

I found this white lacy blouse a few weeks ago from my favorite French brand and it perfectly fits the bill. Classic with a twist, with that something special I always look for in statement pieces. I envision wearing this with jeans (like I clearly am here) and dressing it up for holiday parties and work with different pants and skirts. Also, if you’re feeling especially extra you can wear it over this bra from Anine Bing for a night out on the town.


I actually did find a pair of amazing velvet heels on super sale over the summer and can’t wait to share those soon. Until then, what are some of your standout pieces for Fall?
